According to the “about us” information on the official Alpha Pro Nutrition website, this company is based in Los Angeles California and all the supplements are manufactured in the USA. This sounds good but without any details such as an address or contact phone number, it is hard to believe these claims. After all if you are going to boast about your swanky Californian location, the least you can do is show your address!
Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload is a powdered pre workout supplement, available in either Watermelon Splash or Pineapple Mango flavour. It is supposed to help boost muscle building, energy, and recovery, and is described as Alpha Pro Nutrition’s flagship supplement but a lack of ingredients information lets it down. Although some of the ingredients look ok, expert opinion is that Agmatine and Creatine should not be combined, and we have concerns about the possibly high levels of caffeine. At the same time CarnoSyn levels seem inadequate.
Potential side effects of Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload may include; jitteriness, sleep disturbances, anxiety, headaches, increased heart rate and blood pressure, diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, joint pain, swelling, fatigue, skin rash, itchiness, runny nose, dry mouth, and excessive sweating.
Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload is fairly expensive, and because it seems to be on sale only via Amazon USA you cannot shop around much for price.
Each 240g tub (30 servings) costs $44.99. Choose between Pineapple Mango flavour or Watermelon Splash.
Upload is not very impressive, and we cannot see Alpha Pro Nutrition achieving world domination of the supplements market with this, even if this is their flagship product. The main problem is that it is just not that good. CarnoSyn is underpowered, we have never even heard of Agma Max – this so called supplement brand does not even have a website, and who knows about the rest of the formula? There is just no information about the ingredient quantities, which is not helpful or even safe for the customer. You should never take supplements that don’t provide this basic information.
We have our suspicions about Alpha Pro Nutrition too. Why boast about your address and then not provide your address? All we can say is if they are really in California as claimed, they are keeping well hidden because we have been unable to trace this company on any of the business directories.
Overall, we do not recommend Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload to our readers.
Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload is a pre workout supplement in powder form, that the product advertising claims will provide you with a dramatic increase in energy and mental focus, and even help recuperation and sleep after your workout. According to the product information, it is the company’s flagship product.
The supplement comes in a choice of two flavours; Watermelon Splash or Pineapple Mango that you just add to water and drink.
The main ingredient is a proprietary blend called the Upload Tunnel Vision Matrix, which contains amino acids including branded supplements.
The principle ingredient of this, is CarnoSyn a branded Beta Alanine supplement which at 2000mg per serving, is a little underpowered (3000mg to 6000mg is more usual). It also contains 600mg of Agma Max, a supplement based on Agmatine sulfate. Both these components are supposed to boost nitric oxide in the blood, so increase stamina and blood flow.
According to the product information, there is 4198mg of active ingredients in total which means that after the CarnoSyn and the Agma Max content of2600mg is accounted for, there is 1598mg shared between the rest of the ingredients.
These include amino acids such as L Tyrosine, Glutamine, and Taurine, plus Caffeine and Guarana, Coconut Water, and Rhodiola Rosea.
All these ingredients may do something, but it is impossible to gauge to real effects because nobody knows the exact balance of this formula. We suspect it is going to contain a lot of caffeine!
Other ingredients are vitamin B6 and sodium Nitrate. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
According to the company information, Alpha Pro Nutrition is one of the fastest growing companies worldwide and is poised for greatness. This seems unlikely. There is zero background information to Alpha Pro Nutrition such as a company address or phone number, or any names such as the founder of the company.
We did some digging through the Los Angeles business register, and were unable to find Alpha Pro Nutrition listed anywhere. We can’t see this company taking over the world with their supplement brand if we cannot even locate them in their hometown.
We covered Alpha Pro Nutrition Vex in a previous review, which left us feeling very vexed about this supplement.
According to the advertising there are five key features:
The product description claims it works instantly in numerous ways,
“From the very first dose you will experience a dramatic increase in energy, mental focus, alertness and concentration.
Neurotransmitters fire up in your brain creating mental sharpness for concentrating on the task at hand.
Muscular strength reaches your highest levels and your muscles quickly engorge with fresh nutrient-rich blood as overall fatigue is pushed back.
A dramatic increase in recuperation takes place on a cellular level.”
The ingredients profile is explained,
“Everything is added for a reason; everything in perfect balance and nothing is superfluous.”
This all sounds impressive of course. But there is no real evidence that this formula will work as described. We would have loved to have seen some links to clinical evidence for example.
According to Alpha Nutrition, Upload is the company’s flagship product.
It might do something, exactly what, we are not quite sure. CarnoSyn a Beta Alanine supplement is the principle ingredient at 2000mg per serving. Beta Alanine is an amino acid that is a precursor to Carnosine which is stored in the cells. It helps regulate muscle building and can increase endurance, so is well known as a sports nutritional supplement but is usually consumed at between 3000mg and 6000mg a day.
Agma Max, the other branded supplement comes with very little background info but is based on Agmatine sulfate. This seems to increase nitric oxide levels so may help you “pump “more as claimed. Agmatine may have a beneficial effect upon mood too but although research into this chemical is very promising, most research is based on injections rather than consuming by mouth. Most testing has been carried out using much higher quantities too, so whether 600mg is actually strong enough to do anything at all is unknown.
The rest of the formula is equally uncertain. Ingredient quantities are not provided so effects are pretty much unknown. However, it is safe to assume that Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload will contain a lot of caffeine, and it is possible that this will be the most noticeable effect.
Serving size is equal to 1 x 6.8g scoop serving. Most of the formula comes under a proprietary blend, so ingredient information is incomplete.
The supplement also contains;
With so many ingredients in unknown quantities, it is hard to gauge how this supplement will really feel when you take it. However, potential side effects may include caffeine related adverse effects such as;
Excessive Creatine is well known for causing;
Other side effects may include;
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor first if you have any underlying health concerns or are taking prescription medication.
There are some customer reviews posted on Amazon USA. There is a range of opinion. Some people like the supplement
This man liked the supplement even though it caused itchiness
I am a big fan of this product and use it every day I work on arms, shoulder, back, chest, and/or abs. The taste is great and I notice it’s effects kick in really quickly. One downside I noticed is if I don’t start working out within say 10 minutes of finishing the drink, I start getting fairly itchy in my hands and ears. Not sure why that happens, but it’s definitely correlated to this product.
One of the better pre workouts I’ve tried! Clean flavor doesn’t taste nasty as like others. Gives u plenty of energy to get in the gym and get into beast mode! Would definitely buy again
Some customers complained it did nothing at all,
Did absolutely nothing, no benefit. I’ve taken lots of pre workouts and this one was the worst. No energy, waste of money.
A reviewer called Nancy didn’t mince her words, calling it a “Piece of Sh*t”
No, Alpha Pro Nutrition Upload does not offer a guarantee.
You can buy Upload via the official Alpha Pro Nutrition website which leads you to Amazon USA.
